Re: Newly acquired Ruger SR1911, Long Post

It's interesting to see that even in this poor economy there are still people who think they can continue to get paid while not doing there jobs correctly.

Re: Cannon Barrel

The ATF letter was originally posted on the GBO Black Powder Mortars and Cannon forum . However, it is not recommended that one extrapolate much from any given ATF letter. If you want to do something that is a little different (meaning not a 100% copy of the piece described in this letter), then you...

Re: Cannon Barrel

Generally speaking, muzzle loading cannon are legal if basically a pre-1898 design. Even pre-1898 breech loaders are legal if the ammo is not readily available.

I am not a lawyer and do not give legal advice. :-)

Re: Custom 11 mm dovetail adapter for tac-light.

The recoil of your rifle puts the scope at risk for failing unless it is specifically designed and built for use on a spring air rifle. There is both rearward and forward forces involved and standard scopes are built to resist only the rearward ones.

Re: Scale Model Cannon Manufacturers

Make a visit to the Graybeard Outdoors Black Powder Mortars and Cannon forum. There are a number of people who can make what you are asking about. As mentioned above, a good piece is not cheap.

Re: damaged feed rails

I am not familiar with any details of GB but if the piece was misrepresented, you should have a cause for action. Is the seller still offering items?

Re: Mauser actions

Is there a preference between A or B? I am unsure what this question concerns. However, when refitting a military Mauser to any magnum cartridge, you should use only Model 98 types. The earlier designs are for even less powerful cartridges than the 7.92X57 and would likely be dangerous for a magnum...

Re: drilling barrel wall?

You should take a look at the trap door Springfield design. The hinge pin on that is actually above the barrel. If the hinge point were below the barrel, which would be possible with the design you have shown, the bottom corner of the breech block would pivot clear of the inside corner and little or...

Re: Mauser actions

Some were ground off, some were not, some never had crests. The critical heat treating on a Mauser action is inside and usually that was left unaffected. However, keep in mind the cartridges they were designed for when reusing them. You are operating in the safety factor when they are used for more ...

Re: drilling barrel wall?

As long as there is sufficient "slop" (in this case intentional) in the hinge screws so that the swinging piece can ride against the rear of the breech, this system should be reasonably practical. In a certain sense, it works like the trapdoor Springfield rifle of the post-Civil War era. The back fo...

Re: drilling barrel wall?

You should make the hinge pins integral with the breechblock and figure out some way to keep them in the receiver while making it possible to assemble and disassemble. Or maybe look at a hinged breech shotgun and see what ideas that gives you.
